Jayapatākā Swami: There is a book on the worship of Lord Jagannātha. That book has to be followed. They do the Ratha-yātrā at a particular time. So they were complaining that ISKCON does not observe Ratha-yātrā at the same time. In India we passed the resolution that we would observe the Ratha-yātrā day and during the nine days. So like that some special festivals like Snāna-yātrā, Candana-yātrā and Oḍana-ṣaṣthī is one of the festivals. So how all that is observed is given in this book. So Lord Jagannātha has His own worship standards.
